I think 5 days notice is entirely reasonable for people to come get something that they have left with you for months. You've given fair warning. Im sure now that this hang gone up, its the fire they needed under their collective asses to come get their things.
and I told you to throw that bra out! I don't want evidence like that hanging out.
Don't you dare list it for sale either.
